Ribspreader – Crawl and Slither (Horror Pain Gore Death Productions)

Rogga Johansson – Entrance To The Otherwhere (Transcending Obscurity Records)

On one side of the “bread n butter” death metal spectrum we have artists yearning for the glory of yesterday, struggling to stay relevant. On the other side, young whippersnappers with nostalgia in their eyes flap vainly for our attention… Continue Reading →

Goregäng – Neon Graves (Transcending Obscurity)

Crust Punk to me represents the unifier between Metalheads and Punk Rockers. The sheer aggression of Motörhead combined with the likes of Sex Pistols or perhaps for a better example Sham 69 or Crass. It’s a nasty genre devoid of… Continue Reading →

Grisly – The Spectral Wars (Xtreem)

To quote the vastly talented tattoo artist Curly Moore “addiction implies a lack of control” alas bringing this theory into the practice of my own Death Metal lusts I fear that control is at my folly. Try as I might… Continue Reading →

Down Among The Dead Men – …And You Will Obey Me (Transcending Obscurity)

Paganizer – Land Of Weeping Souls (Transcending Obscurity Records)

You can be as fancy and as hi-tech as you like but after fannying around with the latest fads, in the end you’ll go back to what you know. In a past life the Remmington 870 was my shotgun of… Continue Reading →

Echelon – The Brimstone Aggrandizement (Transcending Obscurity)

This is probably the last album review I’ll pen in 2016 for Ave Noctum and fuck me, what a belter to go out on! I could waffle on like normal with some sub Jeremy Clarkson prose but it’s Friday night… Continue Reading →

Johansson & Speckmann – Edge Of The Abyss (Soulseller)

If you look up “Busy motherfucker” in the Oxford English Dictionary, chances are you’ll be confronted by a photo of Swedish guitar lord Rogga Johansson. This bloke is in so many bands he makes Shane Embury look like a workshy… Continue Reading →

Paganizer – On the outskirts of Hades (Transcending Obscurity Records)

Ah, Paganizer! If you’ve been living under a rock somewhere, you may not know who this Swedish bunch of miscreants are. They’re probably best known as one of the bands of scene legend Rogga Johansson. You know? Rogga? Rogga of… Continue Reading →

Bone Gnawer – Cannibal Crematorium (Pulverised)

The names ‘Kam Lee’ & ‘Rogga Johansson’ crop up a lot in the death metal business. Both gents practically drip in death metal cred and when you see their names attached to a project it tends to be a guarantee… Continue Reading →
